Following on from the success last year at Info Security Europe, Midlands Cyber will return again this year with a pavilion showcasing six Midlands cyber companies.

These are; Air IT (Nottingham), Borwell Ltd (Malvern), Cyber Owl (Warwick), Data Solver (Milton Keynes), Ice Blue (Kidderminster) and Managed Enterprise Technologies (Birmingham) promoting technologies and a showcase of what the Midlands has to offer.

Last year the Midlands Cyber team welcomed a delegation from the State of Maryland to the UK, since then we have gone on to sign an Memorandum Of Understanding between the two regions and taken a return delegation back to Cyber Maryland last October. For 2018, we are delighted to be co-located with the State of Maryland, who will exhibit with ten Maryland cyber businesses to exhibit at the show alongside six Midlands based businesses. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our growing relationship with Maryland and to promote both trade and investment opportunities in the UK and the US.

Gary Woodman, Chief Executive, Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: 

“We are delighted that the Maryland delegates are returning to Info Security, it gives both regions the opportunity to develop the existing relationship and gives our companies a chance to engage with businesses from overseas. We will be advocating the Midlands as the UK’s leading location for Cyber advantage and a serious contender for investors looking to locate a cyber based business, in this thriving heart of the UK.”

Linda Smith, Director of Enterprise, Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said:

Info Security Europe is the main industry show and we are looking forward to showcasing the range of Midlands cyber talent on such a prominent international stage.

The need for next generation cyber solutions is growing the sector across the region at a rapid rate, a new Tech accelerator and access to a 5G test bed are part of the assets development in the region.
